Bridge at Poggio ai Santi

Play bridge in this magical hotel overlooking the sea, with wonderful Tuscan food and a warm Italian welcome. We have already spent 2 weeks playing bridge in this hotel and loved it so much we were sure to return.

Poggio ai Santi

This hidden hill-top hotel in southern Tuscany with views across to the islands of Elba and Corsica, was originally the owner, Francesca’s family home. The farm was gradually converted to create this peaceful hotel with rooms filled with olive-green furniture, driftwood and botanical prints on whitewashed walls. Relax in the comfortable sitting room and bar, or on the adjoining terraces, with their far-reaching views to the sea. The recently converted bridge room is absolutely perfect with large windows looking over to the sea, and a large log fire in case we have a chilly evening. Francesca is a wonderful warm-hearted person who, together with all the staff will make you feel extremely welcome and looked after. 

The hotel has a magical and restful garden overlooking vines, olive groves, the forest and the sparkling Mediterranean. In the distance, Elba Island floats above the haze and rosemary scent the air and birds and bees abound, drawn by a multitude of plants and flowers. Wander through the irises and lilies, under a canopy of pines and palms, to find an immaculate lawn, pink roses hugging iron pergolas and an inviting pool.

All the bedroom suites at Poggio are spacious, beautifully decorated and finished to a high standard. The decor is fresh and bright, and a lot of thought has gone into the styling. The effect is rather timeless: its rural roots are firmly in place, but it’s clear that Francesca understands modern trends for simplicity. Fussy fabrics are kept to a minimum, pieces of driftwood and antique furniture add interest. Wooden shutters keep out early morning light and fresh flowers from the garden scent the air.

Excursions and Activities

We will be organising two optional excursions during your stay at Poggio ai Santi and there are plenty of things for you to do away from the bridge table, including golf and wine-tasting. There are sandy beaches just a 4km drive away with a fascinating Etruscan burial site, and pretty hilltop villages aplenty. Elba Island is a short ferry ride away with crystal clear seas, sandy inlets, barren lands where cacti grow and picturesque ancient villages. There are numerous short walks from the hotel itself through olive groves and down small lanes.

Delicious Tuscan Food  

Il Sale, Poggio’s restaurant, is worthy in its own right, drawing in both tourists and locals for its delicious Italian cuisine in the ‘slow food’ tradition. It serves fantastic seasonal, mainly homegrown food and of course plenty of seafood. Breakfasts can be taken on the terrace and are an absolute treat with eggs cooked to order, plenty of fresh fruit and juices and homemade cakes and pastries.
